The Community Tool Box offers thousands of pages of practical guidance for community change efforts. We'd love to partner with your organization to deliver these resources for implementation to those you serve through a “mashup,” integrating curated tools and guidance for implementation with your organization's framework for change.
To see an example of a “mashup” to support implementation, visit Healthy People 2020. From their “Implementation” tab, if you select one of the phases of their MAP-IT model, you’ll see that Community Tool Box supports are included for those wanting more detailed “how-to” guidance. The Tool Box has supported mashups, or supports for taking action, with partners including the Institute of Medicine, CDC Community Health Improvement Navigator, County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, Unnatural Causes, Medical Reserve Corps, the World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa, a Korean book: A Campaigner to Change the World: A Guide to Community Change and Social Innovation, and the Peace Corps.

Korean Community Tool Box Mashup
"Peace Corps’ work to adapt the Community Tool Box will be an invaluable experience to the work of volunteers. Our work in mobilizing communities to action all over the world through hands-on, grassroots-driven education and capacity building will be greatly facilitated by this tool, particularly in the work volunteers do in the mitigation of HIV in their communities."
Omosalewa Oyelaran and Andrea DeSantis

The Community Tool Box has also served to provide practical supports for scholarly works. For example, this Supplement: Toolkit for Strategic Social Action was created to accompany this Collective Editorial: Ten Guidelines for Strategic Social Action, developed by the Behavior and Social Issues senior editorial staff, the Board of Planners for Behaviorists for Social Responsibility, and other leaders in behavior science. Another example is the Collaborating for Equity and Justice Toolkit created to accompany the Nonprofit Quarterly publication: Collaborating for Equity and Justice: Moving Beyond Collective Impact.
If you think creating a similar “mashup” of free Community Tool Box resources could be helpful to your efforts, please contact us at email@example.com or 785.864.0533. The CTB now has over 5.8 million unique users annually from over 200 countries. With over 7,000 pages—in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Farsi—there is much to choose from to support your work.
Let's work together to get these bountiful capacity-building resources into the hands of those who can benefit from them.
